My printer said it had a print head problem and it would not let me do anything. So I check in town at the place I got it to see if there was some thing I could do. Turns out the printer was recalled for the very problem. So I get a new printer. Every thing set up ok but for printing from my computer. Took me 5 hrs. to fix the problem. So I turned off the Firewall again as I had it off for the download only and it printed. I turned the Firewall back on again and it printed ok. Not sure what turning it off and back on again did, but it's working. So much for the days of plug and play.
Why is it with all the advances in technology printers were not included?
They make there money on the ink! Not the printers.
That's for sure! I guess the technology goes into security for prevention of generic cartridges being used.
You can take the old cartridges in and have them refilled for a third of the price of a new one. Cartridges last me about 2 years.
B/W refills are usually a safe bet. Color ...oh boy! We shell out $1600 for our color cartridges set, just 4 of them.When the color must match previously printed work, refills have never come close to matching OEM, with Color Laser printers.
I understand, I do not use a Laser printer. I only use my printer for in home use. Almost all my printing is in black, I don't do charts and graphs now other then for old friends that I e-mail then to for there use.
Bubble jet printers are a waste of money. High volume demands a laser-printer for lowest per-page copying costs.
Laser really is the way to go. Sure color looks great, but honestly, how often does anyone use their printer beyond text?I spend more on dried out cartridges than I do on printers. Hell, it was cheaper to buy a new printer than it was to replace the cartridges on my last printer.
